I love fresh fruit but I sure don’t eat enough of it. I’m actually sort of picky about how the fruit looks and if it doesn’t look right to me, I won’t buy it. There are certain fruits that always look ok to me. Those fruits include hass avocados, bananas, peaches and pineapple. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits but unfortunately, they just don’t taste good year round like some of the other fruits do. Luckily, I found a good pack of strawberries yesterday so I will be making a strawberry salad pretty soon. Don’t worry, you’ll see that on the blog soon.

The funny thing about strawberries is that I absolutely hated them until about three years ago. You see, when I was a kid, I loved strawberries. I loved them so much that I made myself sick from eating way too many of them. The mind does some funny things and for many years, my mind associated strawberries with a sick feeling so I didn’t eat them. Strawberry flavored ice cream, jams, smoothies, syrups, those were ok. Raw strawberries, nope. Forget about it. Luckily, I finally snapped out of that phase.

But enough about strawberries. Let’s get to peaches. I love adding hot peppers to recipes, especially chipotle peppers. So I put together this chipotle peach salsa to slather atop of some broiled fish. That recipe will come tomorrow but until then, enjoy this recipe!
